NASA Offers Spherical Look at Past, Present and Future
 


Students of Xavier University Preparatory School in New Orleans watch clouds shift across the globe in real time on “Science on a Sphere” during a recent visit to StenniSphere, the visitor center at NASA’s John C. Stennis Space Center. Four projectors work in sync with the suspended sphere to create a revolving display of a planet’s atmosphere, oceans and land; to show documentary movies; or to project models of climate change using satellite data. Pictured are students (l to r) Ebony Johnson, Zhane Farbe, Ashante Snowton and Robriane Larry.
